Yanks Take Game 1 Against Texas

The Good

Phelps looks like a legitimate Major League starter and Derek Lowe 'lowe'red his ERA (see what I did there) with four innings of shutout relief work. A grand slam from Nick Swisher and another home run from one Eric Chavez were also good.

The Bad

The Yankees only managed eight runs against one of the top three teams in the American League. What gives?

The Ugly

Why hasn't President Obama congratulated the Yankees yet for having the best record in the AL East? Because he hates America? Probably.

I Give Money, Money I Got

Two more home runs from the bombers last night, one each from Swish and Chavez.

Raul Ibanez 15hr = $30
Nick Swisher 15hr = $30
Andruw Jones 12hr = $24
Derek Jeter 9hr = $18
Curtis Granderson 30hr = $60
Alex Rodriguez 15hr = $30
Robinson Cano 25hr = $50
Mark Teixeira 22hr = $44
Eric Chavez 13hr = $26
Russell Martin 12hr = $24
Jayson Nix 4hr = $8
Dewayne Wise 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 1hr = $2
Ichiro Suzuki 1hr = $2
Casey McGehee 1hr = $2

Total 178hr = $356

Forget the AL East, the Yankees have the best record in the AL! (The Nationals and Reds are even better - where did that come from?)

I look forward to the writeup on Kuroda's great game 2 win.
